HOW TO: Create Server-Side Plugins

Postby goldcougar » Thu Dec 20, 2007 7:44 pm

Utilizing our Server Public API: http://www.servoy.com/docs/public-api/index.html you can create client-side and server-side plugins.

Creating a client side plugin is very easy. For people unfamiliar with Eclipse, there is an example at http://forum.servoy.com/viewtopic.php?t=5812 which shows a simple client-side plugin.

In addition, you have the ability to create server-side plugins. With a server-side plugin, a client can initiate a call to the server and have the server perform some processing and then return the result back to the client. Our open-souce mail plugin is another example of a server-side plugin.

I have attached some example code of a very simple server-side Hello World plugin.

Great job Scott...
This was really helpful for me, and am sure for the others ..

Is there any such example for developer plugins?

In the public API, there really isn't a lot more you can do with a developer plugin. However if you want to create a developer plugin, it is the same as a client plugin, except you use IDeveloperPlugin and IDeveloperPluginAccess instead of IClientPlugin and IClientPluginAccess.
